Jean have you anything to add to this – perhaps the now-then of this same scene (sans the trestle) that we included in our book Washington Then and Now?
Of course, Paul. Give me just a moment to track them down……
This location was a puzzle on my first pass down Chuckanut. The first real clue was provided by the elevation of the original photographer. A large boulder, now surrounded by trees, provided an obvious potential perch. But the tree cover obscured the bay below. Proof positive was the pull-out, center-left in all three photos, just before the road curves away.
I include, for curious viewers, the original perspective atop the boulder (I used a ladder and pole to replicate the view without the trees in front):
One thought on “Addendum: Chuckanut Drive & The Thrilling Everett-Bellingham Interurban Trestle Below It.”
I have a very similar hand-tinted photograph. Lighter colors, signed the same and framed in a batwing frame, also. On the back a sticker reads “Engberg’s Pharmacy, Cor. Elk and Holly, Bellingham, Washington.”
